Description

Description

A constant quest for quality for both Château Montrose and La Dame de Montrose combined with increasingly precise crop selection now allows us to produce a third wine every year: Le Saint-Estèphe de Montrose. Produced on the remarkable terroir of Château Montrose and vinified by the property’s winemakers, it is a classic blend of two great Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The winter of 2014 was mild, while spring was favourable for all grape varieties. The vine growth cycle slowed down in August but picked up towards the end of the month in warm and dry weather which lasted until the end of October. These exceptional conditions, expressed in temperatures that often rose above 30°C, hydric stress and an almost miraculous amount of sunshine, all helped the grapes to mature.

Tasting Notes

Blend Ratio (Estimate): 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet-Sauvignon

What a nose for a second wine! Lovely cassis and delicately leafy/earthy aromas. It’s a rare beast: a really mineral red Bordeaux. This has excellent balance of ripeness and fresh dry tannins and acidity. Long, clean finish.
